    Overall Experience: I came from a very rough school before my family moved to North Carolina, so in comparison, this school is much more civilized and has been a much more positive experience. The students are easier to get along with and the teachers I have had so far have been absolutely wonderful.

    Administration & Policies: The administration is alright, though they look for any excuse to get you in trouble. On that note, they also care about the students and just want to see them succeed through their mistakes.

    Extracurriculars: I was involved in a number of different clubs and teams that helped me become who I am today. As a member of the varsity soccer team, I was also a part of the School Newspaper and Beta Club. Each required a different level of commitment that I had to put forth.
